  1. We'll be keeping the old deployment in the next patch as we weren't able to promise any further improvements to the tested alternate deployment behavior. Thanks everyone!
  2. During the "overhaul" we've tried to have the tanks without the artificial turning force but it wasn't possible to achieve reasonable behavior so we had to resort back to this solution. Knowing and accepting the downside that you're mentioning.
  3. 18-10-2018 No Dev-Branch update this week due to Arma 3 Creator Bootcamp
  4. You can notice similar behavior on the vanilla tanks too, especially with Nyx. It's a downsides of the tankTurnForce, especially when using higher forces. Try to use lower values or limit the force to lower angular speeds. Tire parameters come into play as well. You may try lowering the lateral stiffness or having a relatively small friction near zero slip - to let the tank turn well even with lower tankTurnForce configured.
  5. Sadly not, we're sorry. It's a pure engine change (simplification of gnd deployment) with not much premise of configurability at this point. From our side - the vertical aiming limits are quite an issue we're concerned about and would like it improved. But it may not happen - just so you know that we're - in a way - "offering" this change "as is".
  6. Resurrecting the thread in order to gather votes and feedback regarding an adjusted weapon deployment behavior when prone on the ground. With this change the ground weapon deployment becomes much less restrictive. It also fixes several visual issues (levitating legs). On the other it may remove the proper feeling of having a weapon deployed and pivoting around one fixed point. It also allows the player to aim quite high in the sky even while still deployed. There are pros and cons. Lets see whether you'd prefer such behavior of ground weapon deployment despite the various other issues that come with it.

  10. The check is between aimpoint of the target and gunnerview (sensorPosition) mem. point of the Cheetah which is quite close to the radar dish. It may also be that the SPAAG radars are only able to cover the hemisphere above them - in such way that their radar can be avoided if you fly "under them".

  13. Atm the table is outdated. Sorry about that. I.e. Macers have 8km range now. We've been well aware of this questionable connection between game rules and an option which relates to performance and visual settings. The main reason was to reduce unfair advantage that one could have with "silent" passively guided weapons if those could be locked beyond what the target can see (aerial vehicles can be seen and tracked up to the terrain view distance). Also in MP environment the server can enforce view distance, so the rules can be fair for everyone in MP. This way we also tried to create room for radar guided and LOAL munitions so they have a role in Arma's scaled down combat range (especially when it comes to long and mid range weapons). So - the current solution is not ideal, it has its pros (weapon balance, fair MP, a bit of authenticity) and cons (game rules according to PC performance). Thanks a lot for the write-up. Hopefully we'll have a chance to make some adjustments and improve the balance of the (vanilla) weapons or make it more interesting.
  14. tankTurnForce and the following related properties
  15. You can toggle 16,8,4 and 32km range via Ctrl+[ or Ctrl+] depending on on what side you have the sensor display opened. This has been more of a deliberate deviation from realism to make the cruise missile more visible (players can't shoot it down and don't have many options how to react to it anyway).
